The coat of arms is divided into three and consists of a golden lion rampant regardant on a black ground (for Gwaethfoed, Prince of Ceredigion), a golden lion rampant on a red ground ( for Rhys ap Tewdwr, Prince of Deheubarth), and a golden lion rampant between golden roses on a blue ground (for Gwynfardd, Prince of Dyfed). The crest is a golden eagle holding an open book perced upon a castle with a Tudor rose to the fore. The supporters are a red dragon with oak branch and a seahorse with trident.
